The ultimate prize is the league title: Murape

DYNAMOS skipper Murape Murape says their success over old rivals CAPS United should provide the impetus in their fight for the league championship after the Glamour Boys maintained a five-year dominance of the Harare Derby on Sunday.

The Harare giants, who are battling for a fourth straight title, managed to keep their campaign on the right track when they rallied back from a poor first half to beat their rivals 2-1.

The victory, while it gave them an edge over Makepekepe on the log standings, was also crucial to reduce the gap between them and log leaders Highlanders to one point.

Murape said the Glamour Boys were not going to rest on their laurels.

“I believe the three matches against CAPS United have given us the momentum and going forward we have to work even harder because this hurdle is now behind us.

“We need to keep focused. We have seen over the years that we usually face big problems with the so-called small teams.

“Only if we can be professional enough to accord all the teams equal respect and carry the same attitude we have against CAPS United into the match against Chiredzi, Bantu Rovers or ZPC Kariba.

“If you look at the table, it promises to be tight competition this season but for us the harder the games the sweeter the victory. It will be crucial to play consistently and collecting maximum points especially from then other close competitors like Highlanders, ZPC Kariba, How Mine and Hwange.

“We are not going to flatter ourselves just because we have managed to maintain our dominance over CAPS United then everything else would fall into place. No, the ultimate prize is the league title,” said Murape.

CAPS United relinquished an eighth minute lead by Tendai Samanja after dominating the first half and three times they were denied by the post to extend their lead.

But Dynamos turned the game on its head after the interval and their efforts were rewarded by goals from Washington Pakamisa and Russel Madamombe.
